Don't It Make My Red State Blue

November 5th, 2008 (08:56 am)

current mood: ecstatic

When I woke up yesterday morning, I lived in a Republican state. By the time I went to bed last night, Virginia was Democratic! We already had a Democratic governor. But now we will also have two Democratic senators. My Democratic congressional rep was re-elected. And the state voted for Obama for president!

I am so proud to be a Virginian and an American this morning. I am laughing and crying. I want to burst into song: The Hallelujah Chorus or We Are The Champions, or anything by John Phillip Sousa.

I'm also so glad I've been volunteering for the Obama campaign. My first reaction to the news of his win was not, "He did it!" It was "We did it!" This morning I'm heading over to campaign headquarters for a visit from Senator-Elect Mark Warner.

I am so psyched.

BTW... if I'm not mistaken, the music played following Obama's acceptance speech was from the movie, "The Patriot." :)

I don't remember what they were playing after the speech. But I never saw "The Patriot" so I probably wouldn't have recognized it. I did notice that this morning, MSNBC was playing its usual classic rock around the news. Most of the music seemed to have been chosen at random. But they did play a few riffs from "Born To Run."
